8 Secrets of People Who Don’t Have Clutter

Tuesday, February 9

I saw this fenomenal article and decided to share it here on the blog. I couldn't have said it better, less clutter, less stress, less things to worry about. And the funny part it that I actually see myself in all of these!

1. THEY DON'T KEEP GIFTS THEY DON'T LIKE
It might seem callous, but there’s no shame in parting with gifts that aren’t your thing. If you're worried you'll offend your mother-in-law, rest assured that she probably won’t ask you where that Santa paperweight went. And if she does, you can always lie and say you’re keeping it at the office.

2. THEY DON'T OWN CLOTHES THEY DON'T LIKE
This one seems obvious, but think about it: How many ugly sweatshirts are you hanging onto just because you might wear them to paint the garage some day? Put those suckers out to pasture. (And when painting day comes, we promise you’ll find a way not to be topless.)

3. THEY DON'T DISTINGUISH BETWEEN SUMMER AND WINTER WARDROBES
You thought that box of bathing suits in your basement was an honest effort to stay organized. But in reality, it’s giving you an excuse to hold onto stuff you don’t need. (C’mon are you ever going to wear that rainbow string bikini?) A good rule of thumb: Your entire yearly wardrobe should fit in your drawers and closet. If it doesn’t, you need to purge.

4. THEY DIGITIZE
Some things--like your first edition Alice in Wonderland--are nice to own in the flesh. Other things--like tax returns from 2006--are better off kept in the cloud. Take stock of your papers, books and movies to see what you could easily digitize and store on your computer or online.

5. THEY INVEST IN SMART GARBAGE SOLUTIONS
Dear anyone who has a stack of magazines or empty water bottles in her mudroom: If you have dedicated recycling bins (preferably tucked away or built into a cabinet), you are far more likely to keep trash out of sight until collection day arrives.

6. THEY CLEAN THEIR COUNTERTOPS DAILY
Ever try to wipe down a counter-top that’s covered in crap? Not so easy, is it?

7. WHEN THEY BUY A NEW ITEM, THEY THROW OUT AN OLD ONE
Think about the stuff in your house in terms of finite numbers. You have 20 pairs of shoes. You have 3 spatulas. You have 6 tubes of lipstick. When you buy a new pair of boots or even just a fun, little cooking utensil, an old one has to go.

8. THEY DON'T HAVE A JUNK DRAWER
Yes, it’s tempting to have a place to store the stuff you’re not quite sure what to do with. But mark our words: Once you allow that old cell phone charger into junk-drawer purgatory, it’s a slippery slope toward total chaos. Best to throw it out, or assign it a proper home in the first place.

Why I Invested on an Iphone

Monday, February 8

This was so hard for me! I was so unsure if I wanted to pay 400€ for a phone, for my that is too much money for a phone, but.. I did it. I did it because I realized that in the last few years I have bought at least 3 new phone because they always developed problems, my last one actually fell into the toilet! 

When I evaluated the money I had spent on those phones and the reason why the stopped working I decided that it was time to invest on something that would probably last me a lifetime! 

This new phone has a much better software, all my other phones started to get slow after only one month of use, this one is still going strong like I bought it today. An I phone is more durable than any other phone out there.. at least that's what I think. So I did invest 400€ on a phone, although I felt sick in my stomach, and now I couldn't be more happier with it!

On my DressLink wishlist

Saturday, February 6

Recently I came across this pretty cool website with pieces with very cheap prices. I love this type of websites to find pieces with different styles that I would like to try out and not spent a huge amount of money! I have found some very nice pieces that I think I may give a try in the future, if I don't like them I can always give them to friends or make a giveaway!

+ LAPEL CAPE +


I saw this cape / blazer and I completely fell in love with it! It will be perfect to make any look more sophisticated and well put together. if I love it that much, I may consider replacing my black blazer! GET IT HERE.


+ LACE UP BLOUSE + 

I have a pair of laced up flats, and although this was/is just another trend, it's a trend that I do love and enjoy wearing. I have seen these blouses before and I really want to try one out and see how they look. They are super sexy and are the perfect combination of a simple black top with a twist. GET IT HERE


+ FAUX FUR VEST +

I have had my eye on a fur vest for quite some time now, but I have never found one that I liked or that was the right price for me to at least try out and see if I liked it and if it went with mu overall style, because, although I'm a minimalist, I like to try out new things. GET IT HERE


+ THE JUMPSUIT +

I used to have an amazing jumpsuit that I loved.. and it got ruined. I have been searching for a replacement ever since and I still haven't found the right one. At DressLink they have a lot of different designs and they all look amazing! I found one that I think is perfect. GET IT HERE
